February Sky will be speaking on “Bring Back the Snakes! An Alternative Look at St. Patrick’s Day” The “snakes” that St. Patrick drove out of Ireland were the Druidic, Pagan, and Celtic ways that the people there had followed for centuries. Whether he drove them out by violence or assimilation, St. Patrick destroyed religious practices and beliefs that were very much life-affirming – among other things, the idea of living in harmony with the natural world and thinking for oneself instead of following authority! Hmmm…..sounds kinda Unitarian, doesn’t it… Let’s bring back the snakes!
Celtic/Irish/Scottish Concert with February Sky 1 p.m. at UUCC
February Sky presents Celtic-based concerts that work well year round, but especially in March, close to St. Patrick’s Day. These concerts include a mix of songs and tunes that are from or based on various Celtic traditions (including but not limited to Irish). Celebrate Celtic culture and tradition in a more inclusive and interesting way than can be found at most St. Patrick’s Day events. A free-will donation will be taken at the door.
